Master Water Stewards – taking on stormwater, and winning!

Master Water Stewards are growing in numbers and literally stopping stormwater pollution in it’s tracks. They do this all while reaching out to their communities and giving their neighbors the tools to do the same effective work!Garden1_19

This year the 2015 stewards are finishing their capstone projects and working with their churches and neighborhood organizations to educate the community on water pollution prevention. Ava McKnight is a steward who organized an event with her congregation and neighbors at  St. Luke Presbyterian Church that showcased a huge raingarden on the church’s property. The event included booths from many different environmental organizations, live music, face painting, a welcome from Minnetonka Mayor Terry Schneider and Heart of the Beast theater performance!
